Jakob Fuglsang: "Easy and perfect"
June 16 th 2019 - 17:53
“I was expecting the day to be even harder than it eventually happened to be but my team controlled it in a perfect way from the beginning. For me, it was a jump in a blue limousine until the finish. We got a nice group sent out. I don’t know what happened to Adam Yates but it seems that he stopped for some reasons and Steven Kruijswijk got some problems. The cold yesterday has affected a few people. Compared to 2017, this victory is special because I got to ride in the yellow-blue jersey. It was maybe more spectacular two years ago when I also won two stages. This one makes me super happy also. My next race is the Tour de France. I’m looking forward to it. I think I’m on the right way. Up to now it’s been a fantastic season for me. I hope it can get even better. Everything seems to come really easy and perfect, with no stress. The whole Astana team is riding super strong this year. Everybody is lifting everybody. There’s a good atmosphere.”
